Monaco is a small state that sits on France’s Mediterranean coast. It’s most famously known for its Formula 1 Grand Prix held on the Circuit de Monaco, as well as the luxurious lifestyle, yachts and famous casinos. Monte-Carlo is the most visited part of Monaco filled with everything that money can buy.
The best of view of the Grand Prix race track is from Fairmont hotel – which is where I stayed. Fairmont is also famous for Nikki beach club and has a great vibe over the weekends. The hotel has a unique design built like a luxury ship with an unbeatable view of the sea.
My dream is to have a beautiful old house in MonacoEva Herzigova
The Monte-Carlo Harbour is one of the best places to enjoy the view and people watch. You will see the most luxurious yachts, stunning views of the ocean and an endless selection of restaurants and cafes. It is the best place to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the yachts. The view at night is magical.
Jardin Exotique is a beautiful garden located on the edge cliff overlooking the bay of Monaco. Make time to visit these amazing gardens – great for families. It truly is worth the visit. Another place to visit is St Nicholas Cathedral – a beautiful catholic church and also the resting place of most of the Grimaldi’s including Grace Kelly. Port de Fontvieille hosts Monaco’s automobile museum which displays the world’s top car collection in Monaco, worth a visit.
Monte-Carlo Casino is a must-see when in Monaco. It is as grand as seen in the movies. My top recommendations for restaurants are Le Grill, Twiga, Nobu, Buddha-bar, Cafe de Paris, Le Salon Rose. For a great night out try The living room, Jimmy’z and Sass Cafe.
Larvotto Beach is one of the most popular beaches in the world. It is open to the public and only a short walk from Monte-Carlo. Be sure to get there early if you want to grab a good stop.
My trip ended with a lovely relaxing massage from Carol Joy Spa.
